Zipper Card Pouch Have you ever had too many cards that your wallet can handle? Be selective and get only those cards that you might be using in a particular shopping mall but end up they were the wrong one? Or, may be just forgot to “update” the cards in the wallet on your next trip? Can’t find the cards you thought you have already put into your wallet? Little Betty Bag: Free Pattern & Tutorial I am so excited with how this little bag turned out! I have made five now, each time being able to prefect the pattern a little more, and it’s finally ready to release for your sewing pleasure. The style is a cross body, which is a personal favorite of mine. It allows for you to put it on and forget it. Especially handy at the grocery store, or any where else I need free hands to chase little ones.

Clear, Easy Zippered Pouches Tutorial I'm only about a month late finishing up my Alphabet Adventures. Sorry about that! If you want to see the rest of this post series, click on "Alphabet Adventures" in the Labels section of the sidebar. So...last one. Today is brought to you by the Letter Z and Zippered Pouches. These are handy little gadgets for all kinds of things. Make A 6-Pocket Mini Pocketbook I’m sure that many of you, like me, are on an eternal quest for organization. I know I’m not alone in finding the Container Store’s promise of a perfect, organized life utterly seductive. But here’s the thing…I don’t really like purging, I love my stuff. Therefore I also love pretty things in which to stash my stuff, so I get to enjoy my fantasy of being organized and contained. This tutorial is about helping you stay organized, in a quick, easy, and super-cute way. It is a distilled version of the Holland Cox pocketbook, and is a breeze to make.

The Bookkeeper This is my FIRST project for Moda Bake Shop and I'm really excited to share it with you. One of my favorite things to do besides QUILTING and CRAFTING is READING! So, for Mother's Day this year my DH bought me an Amazon Kindle. Mod Purse Refashion, a Tutorial The mod purse refashion is officially my first project inspired by Instagram. Are you guys on IG yet? I am addicted, and its bad. Receipt/ Coupon Organizer Tutorial My sister asked for a small pocket organizer to keep receipts in for Christmas. I knew I could get a basic one from an office supply store, but all that boring black plastic seemed like it needed some fancifying. After checking out some examples on the internet, this seemed like something I could handle. I think you could too, if this is something that would help keep your life both fancy and organized, so here’s how I did it. Materials: A piece of fabric cut to cover the outside of your organizer – mine was a legal size, so it was 10.5″ by 18 3/4″ (you only need to add seam allowance to the bottom edget of the fabric i.e. make your fabric piece about 1/2 inch longer than it needs to be) Wide bias tape long enough to go around the outside edges – mine was about 60″. You can either make your own bias tape, or purchase it in a package.

DIY - Trio Zipped Bag I have been sewing a lot lately, and didn't have time to take pictures yet! So one of the last thing I made was my sister birthday's present, a trio zipped bag! I work on the same basis as the Duo zipped bag, but I used 3 different faux leather colors to make pouches. 2 Pocket, Ultra Slim Fabric Card Case A few weeks ago, I went to Dallas for the wedding of a friend of mine from college, and unsurprisingly, the reception ended up doubling as a mini college reunion. Some of those people I literally hadn’t seen since graduation day. Naturally, the experience got me thinking about the thing I am always thinking about: sewing.

Makeup Pouch DIY I hope I'm not the only one who keeps all the fabric scraps, because "I will probably use them one day". I always find how to use pretty patterns. But sometimes, I have dull and plain coupons and I don't know what to do with! Falling Shamrock Tea Towel It’s March! Spring is here in for us in Arizona and just around the corner for the rest of you. As a child back in Oregon, I used to spend hours hunting for the elusive four-leafed clover with my grandmother. I guess because of that shamrocks are rather special to me. My kitchen needed a little green, so I made this shamrock tea towel using DecoArt’s Ink Effects, which is a fabric transfer ink that you can paint on to plain paper and then iron on to fabric. Secrets Of Excellent Conversationalists The solution to the age-old problem of understanding others may be as simple as taking the time to improve your active listening skills. Active listening is all about building rapport, understanding and trust. Your “likability” factor is largely determined by your ability to effectively listen to client and customer suggestions and successfully respond to their needs, requests and concerns.

Sewing: TriFold Floral Wallet {Tutorial & Pattern} This is the trifold wallet I made by using the embroidery with flower applique couching on it. You can get the pattern and tutorial on the embroidery work here. Design and sew this wallet only took me a night to complete (with the embroidery face ready), but begin a novice in Illustrator, drafting and finalizing the pattern took me days. It was fun playing around with Illustrator that sometimes I discovered and tried on other tools and got distracted from drawing the pattern. Finding possibilities to create and develop is my hobby and passion, that’s why I love creative handmade so much By the way, you can get the free 5 pages of printable pdf pattern for this trifold floral wallet here. Scrap It: Gift Card Case or Biz Card Holder Ahhhhh, the gift card. It seems to be such a common choice, and not just as a last minute grab for someone hard to shop for. Gift cards appear to be the go-to gift for anyone and any occasion. Let's face it - they're easy to find, quick to buy, come in any denomination, and are... stunningly impersonal.
